Very interesting, we did with dutch audio (free audio, just leave pasport for deposit). Many people died making the railway and especially the pass, impressive to learn more about it with the audio guide.

A very moving place where such horror occurred and not just Australian but so many nationalities Make sure you get the headphones to hear the stories and first hand experiences. The museum was closed for renovations but the trail was amazing

We have been here before but decided to take the kids this time. As always the place is moving and full of historical information. They were re-building the museum however the walk and head sets provided a comprehensive historical recount. Well worth a visit

Make the effort - an impressive tribute to the thousands who died working on the Death Railway. Congratulations to DVA for supporting the renovation of the Interpretation Centre and for improving access.

We visited Hell Fire Pass in the pouring rain which makes you appreciate what these brave men had to contend with to build this railway. As an Australian I'm very proud that the preservation of this historic site continues.
